SUVs and crossovers have been taking over the American auto market for going on a decade now. With every auto manufacturer putting its own spin on the crossover SUV, it’s difficult to pick which ones to consider. With opponents like the 2020 Honda CR-V or the 2020 Toyota RAV4, crossovers need to be at the top of their game. To say the competition is fierce would be an understatement. We think there’s a clear choice, though.
The 2020 Terrain has two available engines: a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder and a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder. The 1.5L produces 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque; it is standard on the SL, SLE, and SLT trims. The 2.0L pumps out 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque; it is available on the SLT and standard on the Denali.
Each Terrain gets a smooth 9-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard on all trims, but all-wheel drive is available on the SLE, SLT, and Denali models. 1.5L-engine, front-wheel drive Terrain owners can expect 27 combined mpg, while 2.0L-engine, all-wheel drive Terrain buyers will get 23 combined mpg.
Comprehensive Safety Suite
The Terrain has standard automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, hill descent control, IntelliBeam automatic headlights, lane keep assist, StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, and a tire pressure monitoring system. Higher trims get access to automatic parking assist, GMC connected navigation, HD rear vision camera, HD surround vision, lane change alert, rear cross-traffic alert, and a safety alert seat.
